Re: The Snortin' bull

Check straps or door stops. Using the jeep one's to do the mod at Crown jeep parts. Look close at the boxes the factory number is on them. These fit the later trucks pretty easily. Though take a little work to fit to the 60-63.lOOK close the originals are split bracket to rubber stop. Original pins fit also.

Re: The Snortin' bull

The jeep door straps do take some work. Nothing major. the original holes in the door shell need to opened slightly. I used a RH angle drill with a step bit in thru the inside of the door shell.. The pivot bracket on the pillar is best I think to be split ( cut ) in half and than slightly thin down the jeep strap to fit better .

Re: The Snortin' bull

The deluxe wheel was in fair shape though had about a 9" open wound on the bottom of the hoop.The inner steel hoop was exposed and rusted. Cleaned and prepped and then some PC7 and some curing by the fire some sanding and than some more of the same till like new. Well almost more to come.

Re: The Snortin' bull

Smelling raw gas all the time. Though I don't use the mustang tank sender it is the pickup tube for fuel. It start leaking. Had to drain tank and reset the seal and put a little fresh paint on tank.

Re: The Snortin' bull

I love the 'no bull' approach you have taken with the Bull. Just read your entire thread and enjoyed watching the Bull come to life. Keep up the good work.
